Tasks 4 gold

Post by cooke4444 on 2012-01-11, 11:28

Right, here it is then:

The game will consist of completing several tasks, find answers to questions,... Actually that's it, but tactics will be very important! As people will have to vote who's going to leave the competition, it's maybe best to form alliances. But how will you do that? By PM, throw it out in the open on the forum, or maybe both to trick others? It will be hard, as if you make lots of alliances: you'll need to break them at one point to win yourself.

Yeah, that's called reality TV (or politics, choose what you like). You'll need to be online at least every 36 hours (that's not too much, ey).

Read the rules carefully!

Rules:

- Only for eBelgians

- By winning a task, you gain immunity for the next round. But this will bring with it that you'll need to eliminate 1 person. This choice you'll need to post personally, and out in the open, on the forum. Then the voting for elimination starts.

- The amount of people who'll go out will be decided by the number of participants. If there's, for example, three people who'll need to be eliminated, you'll need to send three names in PM to me.

- The person that has immunity still has to vote in PM, even after eliminating the earlier person.

- Persons who don't vote before the deadline, will be eliminated from the game!

- You don't have to give an answer to everything, as some competitions will be closed early because the right answer has already be guessed.

- Deadline of voting can be changed if everyone has sent his votes early.

- Competitions will each have different rules, which will be posted later when that competition starts. Voting rules stay thesame, only number of eliminations changes.

- Final will be between 2 people. Winner gets 2 gold. Rules will be posted later for this.

- If you want to participate you post this sentence, so I know you read the rules:

"I'm a hobo, so I need that gold"

- No fee to participate btw.

- Feel free to ask questions.

EDIT: deadline to participate: Friday at 10.00 Belgian time!

Like... WHAT?

Guess I'm not watching enough Reality TV series, because I don't really grasp the rules. So (at least) one person will be eliminated by the winner and (at least) one other person will be eliminated by "popular" (or in this case: least popular Razz) vote?

EDIT: Although I don't understand them, I did read the rules, so count me in... Wink "I'm a hobo, so I need that gold"

The winner eliminates only one person, by posting that name on the forum.
The others send by PM at least one name of someone who'll be eliminated. Exact number will be announced as soon as the voting starts. The people who gets voted the most, will be out of the game.

Tecuvo is for all laws on this forum considered to be an eBelgian citizen. Wink So if he has all the obligations to follow the law. You think he could have some of the advantages of citizenship too ? Razz

Can someone give me the definition of a hobo please? I always thought it was a musical instrument so I don't really understand why they would need money.

BenE - A hobo is someone who is homeless and makes a living on what he can beg, borrow or steal. An oboe (hautbois in French) is a musical instrument. Wink

Thanks Maryam,

In Dutch the instrument is written as hobo and I never heard about the other definition.

Can you spot the link between the next 5 pictures?
Answers via PM to me. You may only guess once! If the person isn't found in 24h, a new hint will appear.
First to find the link gains immunity, good luck!

Sammy Tanghe is our first winner!

The answer was: Barack Obama

Why?

- The Masaï tribe has its origins in Kenya, just as Obama
- Toast Hawaii: Obama was born in Hawaii
- Frozen fries: most known brand is "McCain", Obama's opponent in the 2008 elections (the politician, not the fries)
- a bush: sorry for that one. Bush was president of the USA before Obama
- Democratic republic of Congo: Democratic party.


What now?

Sammy Tanghe can't be eliminated, but he has to post one name from a person who'll be eliminated and thus is out of the game.

After Sammy Tanghe has posted the name, you'll get 36 hours (or longer, if the deadline would end on a crazy hour like 4.00 in the morning) to send 2 names in PM to me.

Not voted = out of the game

wait, what?
that really was the answer? o.O

I did saw the possibility with the hawaii and the kenya, thought Congo mostly because he's still mostly African American, from which many their ancestors came from the congo region

so now I really have to kick someone out, huh ... (crude game)

I'm taking shadow, he really doesn't need that gold, I think Wink
